Very clean, nice staff and they have their own parking garage. If you ask for the "KGO Special" you will get a room, including parking and 10% off at the Daily Grill during your stay. The location is great - just steps away from fabulous shopping. Spend several nights here during the year as it's a great value.

We recently stayed at the Handlery for the third time and have recommended it to friends. The staff is friendly and they make great meal recommendations. The biggest plus is that it is in the middle of all the action at Union Square and so central to all the great things that make San Francisco so special. You can't go... More

We stayed her for 10 days (minus one day when we went down the coast). The location is superb for shopping and sight seeing. We stayed in the older part of the hotel and to be honest I was worried because I had read reviews which said it was tired and needed urgent updating. Well, they were wrong. It wasn't... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the room. It was much more updated than I expected. My husband and I stayed three nights. We were greeted each time that we entered and left the hotel. We were asked several times if everything was okay and if we were enjoying our stay. We had no complaints. Everything was perfect.

Great location, with several options to eat around, almost on the corner of union square, return to this hotel ever, is a very old and renovated building, but the amount that I paid. Near the famous "trolley" San Fran. And I thought better to stay in this region than there in Piers.
